The update appears to download okay but installation then fails without any type of understandable error message. I use both Spybot and Lavasoft Ad-Aware and neither has detected anything that would seem to hinder the windows update installation.
It seems that the laptop has tried to install some of the update because now when I boot up I get an error related to "Autochk program is missing" autocheck was canceled. I also often encounter script errors when running Internet Explorer which seems to happen about the time the windows update installation failed.
This is driving me bonkers!! HELP!!
I have attached a screen shot of the windows update error and also a Hijackthis log if it is of any value.
